Themed cottages with  the five Attributes of  Lord Shiva

 
 
 
 

TRISHUL (THE TRIDENT)

Being the symbol of power, Lord Shiva used the Trishul to conquer the world outside & within. The Trishul has three spokes, each signifying the Gunas (qualities/ strings/ threads) in human life. The Gunas are Rajas (passion, active, confused), Sattwa (goodness, constructive, harmonious) & Tamas (darkness, destructive, chaotic) - Each one holding different attributes of human consciousness. Lord Shiva holds on to these Gunas; he is therefore NIRGUNA (The eternal, all-prevailing & omnipresent divine consciousness).

RUDRAKSHA

(A necklace having 108 beads made with seeds of the Rudraksha tree). Rudra is Lord Shiva & Aksh is the eye. Rudraksha is a rare gift of nature to mankind. Mostly natural, Rudraksha beads come with a natural hole drilled in the centre, as if nature intended man to use the Rudraksha bead to be linked together. Rudraksha is believed to symbolize the link between earth & heaven, between man & God. Lord Shiva wore many strings of the Rudraksha from his dreadlocks to his ankles.

THE MOON

The Moon is eternal, a part of the universe as we know it. It was the Moon that gave the first inhibiters of earth a sense of time. Lord Shiva loved the Moon so much, he plucked it out of the sky & adorned it on his head. Having conquered time & space with the Moon on his head, Lord Shiva is beyond time. He is the beginning, He is the end.

DAMRU (DRUM)

Damru symbolizes the Universe which is always expanding & collapsing. From an expansion, it collapses & then it re-expands, this is the process of creation. Like a heartbeat is a rhythm that goes up & down, the whole world is nothing but rhythms. Lord Shiva holds the Damru in his left hand, creating & destroying, in a beautiful rhythmic sound.

NANDI (THE BULL)

Nandi is the vahana (vehicle) of Lord Shiva- the God of skies & destruction. Nandi is the bearer of truth & righteousness. It signifies strength, load bearing capacity & virility. Nandi is considered a guard or a protector of all Shiva temples, hence the reason why he is placed outside the temple. Scientifically, the divinity of Nandi is resplendent of intuition & instinct; thus it is said that one should look at Lord Shiva from in between Nandi’s horns, from where one can view the Lord, maximizing one’s instinctive abilities.
